If you are a Commercial driver’s license (CDL) holder in the state of Ohio and are convicted of an OVI/DUI, you face far stricter and severe punishments than a typical driver would. You will not only be punished in the same manner that someone without a CDL would be, but your CDL may also be impacted which could end your professional driving career, even if you were not driving your commercial vehicle at the time of the incident. If you are a CDL holder and have been charged with an OVIO/DUI, you must speak with an experienced CDL OVI/DUI attorney right away.
